Re: [3.3.x][Feature] Topic description

While I agree with you it's also true that additions of something this small is would likely not even change the size by even a KB. It's not about filesize, but about complexity of the code. All 3.x versions suffer from the fact, that they inherit code from old 3.0 versions, which is, admit it, arc...

Re: [3.3.x][Feature] Topic description

S3/Dropbox are storage providerd, how is that related to how the file is uploaded? What you want is storage providers, not upload providers. Sorry, I was maybe just confusing. CHItA explained it clearly. We would implement the filesystem interface and let various providers handle the files in their...

Re: phpBB 3.1 C++ user database integration

Possibly you can create an extension that will add new CLI task, that will return true if login/password combination is correct and false otherwise. You can use phpBB's functions and classes inside the task. Then you can call this task in your application.
